Effective January 1, 2017, the University of Chicago Health Plan (UCHP) has contracted with Aetna to administer existing plan benefits. UCHP will continue to provide comprehensive health care benefits through the University of Chicago Medicine facilities including The University of Chicago Medical Center (UCMC), and by UCHP Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) and UCHP Specialists. As the new UCHP administrator, Aetna will simply help UCHP provide customer service and medical management services. Aetna also will enable UCHP membership to better access health tools, resources and programs, such as a 24 hour Informed Nurse Healthline and online access to Plan information.

Aetna's Member Service Representatives are ready to help you. They are here to answer any questions about UCHP coverage Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm. You can contact a Member Service Representative by calling 855-824-3632.
